Touring the 911 Ship: USS New York

She was in port for a week as part of her christening ceremonies.

On Sunday the Vigilant Squirrel brigade took a tour of the ship and sent these photos:

“Never Forget” was a recurring theme throughout the ship.  A motto the men and women on board will hold close to their hearts.  A motto we wish many of our politicians would remember.

On board is a memorial to those who perished on 911.

One of the prized possessions on the new ship is the Patriotic Flags quilt of flags that have flown over Ground Zero, the Pentagon and the Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, PA.
